(This was written on our last traveling day, Tuesday 🙂 .)
Welcome aboard, Uriah! Weâ€™d like to take a few minutes to show you around. Today is a beautiful day, with not too much wind, but youâ€™ll still want to watch your step.
This is looking from the front of Uriah. I wish weâ€™d taken a picture of Joseph as he took this picture. Youâ€™ll notice his recliner, on your left, is empty. Thatâ€™s his spot.
Mom is the official navigator (notice the atlas in her lap). Everyone is sitting in their normal places, except for John. He goes back and forth between the jumpseat, which is up near Dad, or in Momâ€™s recliner, when sheâ€™s in the jumpseat, or various other places. Mom will often sit in the jumpseat, to keep Dad company.
Letâ€™s step past our seating area, and youâ€™ll see our little â€œkitchenâ€, or â€œpantryâ€. Our refrigerator door is held closed with a bungee cord due to its propensity to pop open when we make a curve. The microwave is secured as it sits on top of the fridge, and weâ€™ve really enjoyed it on the trip! The taller boys have an easier reach than we girls 🙂 . The shelves the boys built right beyond the fridge have been so useful; Mom has everything organized so that we have a lunch tub with our essentials, breakfast tub with food for the boys, and other misc. boxes and tubs.
Letâ€™s step through the doorway, and youâ€™ll see a set of shelves on the right side, and the first pair of bunkbeds on your left. The shelves hold many miscellaneous items; we added another set this trip, and Iâ€™m not sure what we did without them!
Round the slight corner, and youâ€™ll see our hanging clothes.
To your right, is the last set of bunkbeds, and straight ahead is the restroom on board for your convenience (but the rest stops are preferred!).
Turning around to go back up front, hereâ€™s another view.
Finally, going back up front, looking toward the back, here are four of my wonderful brothers!
Thank you for stopping in to see around our metal tent 🙂 .
Sarah for the rest
